Dominic Harris, ‘Rose | Bloomed (medium)’, 2016, Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design

Enjoying the honour of being the most popular flower in the world, the rose is a symbol of love and beauty. Originally wild and cultivated globally there are over 100 species. Each colour rose symbolises a certain value and their popular scents come from tiny perfume glands on the petals. A true beauty.

Interaction

The classic red rose is re-interpreted through responsive animations that present the rose in a series of classic poses. At times the single rose stem will become entwined with another thorny growth from below, that slowly creeps up and then quite subtly will disappear. A Morpho butterfly will at times land on the rose when it is being watched, and petals may flutter through the composition during other interactions.

About Dominic Harris

Since establishing Cinimod Studio, a multi-disciplinary, London-based practice in 2007, artist and designer Dominic Harris has gained international attention for his digitally-driven works of interactive art. Harris has devoted recent years to seamlessly blending natural phenomena with complex code through integrated electronics and innovative fabrication techniques. Inspired by the architectural interventions of James Turrell and Dan Flavin, Dominic offers viewers a sublime experience of their surrounding environment in his surreal installations that wryly illuminate the effect of digital culture on human perception in the information age. One of the artist’s most ambitious pieces invited participants to wildly gesture or attempt to change their own heart rate, which would in turn light up the London Eye.

British, b. 1976, based in London, United Kingdom
